The Province of Parms offers a wide range of spas and thermal treatment centres, thanks to the abundance of waters rich in minerals, which have been exploited since ancient times: the thermal system in the Province of Parma is one of the most complete in Europe, and offers excellent services and facilities as well as a considerable accommodation capacity.
Today, the spas at Salsomaggiore, at Tabiano, at Sant’Andrea Bagni and at Monticelli combine thermal treatment with wellness facilities, presented as the “new frontier” of spa treatment: the location is in the green hills, in peaceful oases which provide the opportunity to relax but also to take part in cultural and social events, admire historical and artistic sites, and take interesting excursions in the vicinities.
